Slideshare continues to evolve as one of my favorite social sharing and networking sites around.

With more than 25 million visitors each month, it should come as no surprise that Slideshare can be utilized in a variety of ways for general professional networking, to showcase ideas, gain competitor insight, talent recruitment, advocacydevelop new business leads, create shareable training, drive personal branding and support other outreach.

The site also continues to evolve and adapt to the needs of businesses and organizations alike with announcements this year around branded channels, video sharing capabilities and business products such as AdShare and LeadShare. Here’s some additional breakdown:

Interestingly enough, 80% of Slideshare’s members are qualified as decision makers – people you should be connecting with on a regular basis. For good reason, the site integrates with other professional networking sites such as LinkedIn and makes it easy as pie to share and embed content across the Web.

If you or your business are not currently utilizing Slideshare in one way or another, you’re missing out on a big opportunity. Take time to think about your company’s communications channels. How can Slideshare be utilized to help amplify your mission or news,  improve networking or general efficiency around your training processes?

For those on the nonprofit front, Beth Kanter posted this excellent presentation around 9 Ways Networked Nonprofits Use Slideshare.

Feel free to share your own tips or insight on how to make the most of Slideshare below.

Cheers,
Scott
